Geetha Ramaswami

Nature Conservation Foundation

I am the programme manager for SeasonWatch, a citizen science project looking at the effects of seasons on tree phenology, since March 2018. In the past, I have been a post-doctoral research associate with the Nature Conservation Foundation with an interest in invasive plants. I worked on an invasive plant – Lantana camara – for my PhD; trying to understand how the environment affects where and how this species spreads and also how indigenous species respond to the presence of this invasive plant. I later worked on a short project assessing the reasons by which the management of Lantana has largely failed in Indian forests. I currently work on understanding the impacts of  Lantana on native plant-disperser interactions.
